Nvidia 8400gs or ati hd4350 for HD video playback on a pcie1.0 slot???

I have a old computer with a intel 2.6 HT processor and 1.5gb ddr1 ram and a pcie 1.0 slot. so i wanted to buy a graphics card that will play high definition vids very smoothly and it should also offload the cpu. i was thinking of ati radeon 4350 or the nvidia 8400gs pcie2.0 but i dont know if it will work with my pcie1.0 slot as it is smaller in size...im sorry im a amatuer in this stuff...also can anyone name a few graphics card for me to play HD stuff very smoothly and will the above config suffice to play HD movies...thanks in advance

  1. either will work but the HD4350 is easier to set up with its HDMI video/audio port. The Nvidia 8400GS needs you to set up a SPDIF cable to your mobo.
  2. HD 4350 is better than the 8400gs and will be great for watching HD movies an a little gaming too at lower resolutions....so go for the HD4350 it's good.
  3. thanks for the quick reply guys...but i have a pcie x1 slot (i know its a old comp) so will the pcie 2.0 card of hd4350 go in it....again im sorry for my ignorance i dont know much about pcie slots...
  4. a PCI-E 2.0 card will work fine in a PCI-E 1.0 x16 slot
